This month is all about fashion weeks. From New York, London, Paris and Milan, you can take your pick! We can't say we have a favourite, but the closing show of NYFW this season, Rihanna's SavageXFenty at Brooklyn Navy Yard, is definitely one for the books. After starting the conversation about beauty inclusivity through Fenty Beauty, Rihanna continues to celebrate diversity through her lingerie line as seen in the brand's campaigns and their show.
When RiRi included people in various body shapes, there was real diversity. Pregnant models? Colour us impressed. The move was, according to Rihanna, inspired by the idea that there shouldn't be any woman left out. "I think it’s a shame women have to feel insecure or self-conscious about how their bodies look. They’ve been taught by society that only one thing works,” she said.
But it's not just Rihanna who's championing diversity. Check out other celebrities who have clapped back at their body shamers.
Love her or hate her, we all know that Kim does not fit the ideal 'stick-thin' beauty standard that was popular years ago. She has always been proud of her curves; it even caused her to get flak for the way she flaunts her assets. Back in 2016, she wrote on her website, "I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me."
